Month by Month Girls Supported

By Shana Greene | Co-Executive Director/Village Volunteers

Dear Supporter,

It's such an honor to write to you - a person who is compassionate and understands what simple necessities can mean to a young woman in poverty. A period is considered a curse when girls have to deal with the cost of pads and are traumatized by the embarrassment that comes with the uncertainty that keeps girls from attending school consistently.  

The facilities that make pads are run by marginalized women who had few choices in life out of pain and suffering. Marginalization in poverty is being relegated to a position indicating they have no importance. Just the opportunity to work in a job with dignity without the abuse that has been their way of life is life-changing for women. The girls who receive pads are able to attend school and find their way in life. All of the programs provide counseling and assistance to get them through the hard times. 

We just wired $500 USD to each location for pads which will be distributed at the shelters, clinics, and public health venues. Being 100% biodegradable, the pads can decompose in the most rudimentary sanitation conditions. 

The point of this humble request is that it honors women in their most vulnerable state. Women are sacred because they have the ability to give birth. No small feat. 

Thank you!

Shana Greene
